Kate looks so good. The coat is lovely, I like the style and the colour.
Not a big fan of this coat

I love the colour and the fringe look. as for styling, what else is possible? She is wearing, as far as she is concerned, a maternity coat. and she isn't into (thank goodness) the "let me parade by maternity shape for all to see" attitude. Limited choice available and I think girl done good.

Agreed. The color was nice for spring and it was a nice maternity coat. She can't do much more at the moment.

I continue to love that hat (not sure why I like it so much, but it's a favorite of mine), though something in a different color might've been better (perhaps if it were lighter, like a nude or a cream color).

As for the coat, at first glance, I really didn't like it and found it a bit frumpy. Upon taking a closer look, though, I realized that it it's the buttons that are putting me off. With different buttons and a hat in a better color, I think I'd really like this outfit. As it is, I still think it's nice.

Looks vintage. Could it be Carole's mother's?

The shape of this coat is fashionable, although perhaps only in Europe. Many people liked the lilac coat worn this week by CP Victoria. It's the same shape.

I don't think it does, although the hat itself is cute...
But I find the coat hideous.

I like the cut of the coat, but not crazy about the color. Then again, green is one of my least-favorite colors, so no big surprise there.

This coat will be either loved or disliked, because it has a very particular style and an unusual color that we don't use regulary in our daily routine.
This is one of those clothes that only matter in personal taste (althought some clothes might not fit my taste, it doesn't mean I dislike them, but this coat is diferent, if its someone's taste, they will like it, but if its the opposite, people will really dislike it. After all, this particular coat does have a very distint color and style)

Does anyone have a close-up of her earrings?

Love the colour on Kate - its not often we see her in pastels like this. Perfect for the spring day. However i just think it is too shot for the pregnant Kate and would have prefered it knee-length

why does a pregnant Kate have to wear longer clothes? What difference does pregnancy make?

I think it's an interesting choice- certainly not boring or predictable. Good to see she is looking well too.

That color is quite lovely on Catherine. It's nice to see something bright and spring-like after the dark and neutral colors that one may choose during the winter. I don't like the buttons on the coat, but the style is not bad, especially for a maternity item. It's hard to find something flattering, as well as modest, since, as someone else mentioned, most maternity wear is about 'showing off' one's bump and other 'assets'. The earrings are simple and beautiful, and go so nicely with the color of the coat.

The coat looks just like something my mother wore in the early 1960s. I'm not fond of the buttons, and mint green is not a color I care for, but, Kate looks healthy, happy and radiant. She wears the outfit well, it's tasteful and just perfect for a cool spring day.

Its interesting that you mention the 1960's and the buttons because they reminded me of MAry Quant's emblem of a stylised 4 petal daisy from the 1960's. You either have to be as old as me or a student of fashion history to remember that!

It's got a very Chanel-esque feeling to it. All it need is a little fringe.

I love this coat, very 60's which are my favourite decade.

But the hat is not working with the coat for me.

The hat is horrible. I don't like the coat, although the color is fresh.
